Dropdown selection using Angularjs

Posted on 2014-02-22
Last Modified: 2014-02-24
Hi Experts,

I am using HTML5 and AngularJS and have a dropdown that contains state codes (Ex: AL,NY,CA,DE,FL,NJ etc) .For instance  if a user from New york state logon to the system then in the  dropdown "NY" should be selected , I will get current user state code via Angular service. Once I get current user from service in the controller I should bind it to dropdown .How can I achieve this using angularJS ? Any sample working code would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance
